#CoverReveal – Cross (Gibson Boys 2.5) by Adriana Locke @authoradrianalocke

Cross Jacobs was a screw-up.

Everyone knew it, especially him, and the point was hammered home when Kallie Welch drove herself right out of his life.

But, she’s back.

Seeing Cross wasn’t on Kallie’s to-do list. She didn’t think she could avoid him forever but trying never hurt anyone. One minute she’s standing by herself and the next she’s accosted by a rich, velvety scent that could only belong to one man: Cross.

At face value, he’s divine. All rugged and confident with a smile that melts her right where she’s standing. It doesn’t take long to find him to be charming, witty, and the owner of a few legitimate businesses. Not at all like the mischievous boy she left.

He laughs and her heart flutters. With a touch of his hand, she’s dizzy. She’s fairly certain she’s going to die when he pulls her into an embrace and touches his lips to her forehead.

It feels right. It feels so right.

But is it?

#AudioReview – Elite (Eagle Elite #1) by Rachel Van Dyken

18849991

For Tracey Rooks, life with her grandparents on a Wyoming farm has always been simple. But after her grandmother’s death, Tracey is all her grandfather has. So when Eagle Elite University announces its annual scholarship lottery, Tracey jumps at the opportunity to secure their future and enters. She isn’t expecting much-but then she wins. And life as she knows it will never be same . . .

The students at Eagle Elite are unlike any she’s ever met . . . and they refuse to make things easy for her. There’s Nixon, gorgeous, irresistible, and leader of a group that everyone fears: The Elect. Their rules are simple. 1. Do not touch The Elect. 2. Do not look at The Elect. 3. Do not speak to The Elect. No matter how hard she tries to stay away, The Elect are always around her and it isn’t long until she finds out the reason why they keep their friends close and their enemies even closer. She just didn’t realize she was the enemy — until it was too late.

I purchased this audio book.

As far as narration goes it was OK I like to hear a male reading a male roll and female reading a female role. The narrator did a good job but there is just something about a female tying to sound masculine especially when there are so many different males.

Tracey is a farm girl who was raised by her grandparents after her parents died. She won a scholarship to Eagle Elite Collage. Tracey wants to make her grandparents proud. However, she learns very quickly things at Eagle Elite are not all fun and games. Well unless you call mind games a game. She literally runs into the Elect. You see they run the school you do as they say; you do not touch, look or speak to them EVER!!! Well Tracey broke all those rules on her first day. Her saving grace is her roommate Mo who happens to be the sister of the Elect’s leader.

Nixon is the controller of all that Eagle Elite. I honestly did not like him or the others for that matter. My heart ached for Tracey the way The Elect flipped that on and off switch so easily. Talk about a seesaw ride catching highs and drop to the lows. I have to say when secrets stated to be revealed I was like holy crap its hitting the fan now.

This was something new for me. I have not read many mafia books but this one stood out. The plot was great I felt as lost as Tracey did. I loved being in the dark like Trace was I was trying to figure out why is this happening to her why are they nice, then mean then nice again. I’m saying the roller coaster was insane. This one had me pulled in now I need more. OK going to down load Elect.

#Review – Power Player by Chelsea Camaron and Ryan Michele

Power Player: Anti-Hero Game: Power Chain Book Two

Rules will not be broken.

Especially by her.
She was a strong woman.
It turned me on.
She became my personal challenge. It made me hard.
The more she hated me, the more I relished it.
I’m determined to break her down.
I am Paxton Williams. I’m a power player in an underworld game only few people know exist.
She knew the rules.
She knew the consequences.
She should know I’m not the man to let anyone get away…Including her.

Authors Chelsea Camaron and Ryan Michele team up to push beyond the boundaries, crossing a line into a deep, dangerous, and forbidden world. One where no one escapes, even if they beg to.

This is the Power Chain Series – a four book series of interconnected stand-alone romances.

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

I am enjoying this series. It is a new concept that is intriguing to me. Bad boys and feisty women.

Laurel Conrad and Paxton Williams have a volatile relationship. After seeing Laurel bust in to a room putting a gun to Paxton you know this is gonna be a good one.  Laurel and Paxton were friends a kids and Laurel gave him her heart. But when he ran because he thought she deserved better he crushed her. Now is the time for Paxton to take what is his.

Laurel has a fire like no one else. She will not back down or give in. however, no matter how strong willed Laurel is Paxton knows her too well and cannot one-up him. I absolutely love her spunk and tenacity it keeps Paxton on his toes. He has to in this game of chess he is playing. I loved seeing the things Paxton did for Laurel. Yes, he did kidnap her but the cabin and all the thought that went into it made my heart flutter.

Not only do I love the guys of this series but the women are pretty awesome too.  Ellen Sue is amazing her loyalty to the guys is like no other. I enjoyed getting to know more of her and see more of her personality. I have to say Onyx and Paxton knew what they wanted and they took it literally. I have to say I didn’t like them in the beginning of either book but by the end they grew on me and I loved them. I cannot wait to see what Dane and Garrett hold in store for us. I am sure it will be good.

#NewRelease – Promise Me by Reana Malori

Promise Me

Reana Malori

Contemporary Interracial Romance

Blurb

Falling in love is easy.

Staying in love is the hard part.

One day is all they need, to remember why they fell in love.

From the outside looking in, Brandon and Monique Rivera were the perfect love

story. College sweethearts who’d fallen for each other at first sight, they’d been

inseparable from the first day they laid eyes on each other. They were the couple

everyone looked to as the gold-standard and they’re love held strong, even in

the face of family conflicts and long-held beliefs.

After years of loving each other and building a family, the cracks are starting to

show in the once perfect relationship. The reality of life, raising two kids, and

long hours at work, was an ongoing challenge to their marriage. When the nights

are long, and the days filled with chaos, Brandon and Monique must stay

focused on each other, their lives, and their love.

Excerpt

He’d fought tooth and nail over the years to convince her father that being with Monique was not some fetish or phase that he was going through. When he’d met her in college, she’d been a junior and he a senior. He’d known within the first ten minutes of meeting her on the quad, that she was the woman he would marry someday. Of that he was sure. Convincing her of that fact took much more time and effort. She was worth every second of every moment he’d gone after her. Flowers. Dinners. Playlists with all the best sappy love songs. Hell, he was willing to do anything just to get her to smile in his direction.

Shaking his head at the twists and turns their lives had taken, he smiled at the memory of some of the hoops he had to jump through to finally make her his. He spent more time and energy convincing her to give him a chance than he had on his classwork.

Laughing under his breath at how desperate he’d been at the time, he was glad he’d been able to woo her with his charm and wit within a few weeks. Otherwise, he would have failed out of school. Which wouldn’t have helped him one bit, especially with her parents. When she’d finally decided to give him a chance, it had been the best day of his life.

It’s hard to keep secrets in a small town…

It’s even harder to keep a secret that could expose not only your family, but an entire species. That’s what Frankie Cavanaugh must do. As the daughter of the leader of the Wisdom Counsel, it’s up to her to step into her father’s shoes until another leader is chosen.

It’s also up to her to continue her lineage within the species.

She wants to do neither. She considers the shifter gene a curse rather than a gift, robbing her of a normal life. Unfortunately, the Counsel doesn’t see it that way and is determined to wed her to their next leader – by force, if necessary.

Tanner Coalson is fresh out of college and ready to tackle whatever life has in store for him. First item on his to-do list is marrying the woman he has loved for years. He knows Frankie will baulk at the notion because she’s fifteen years older and was his childhood sitter. He’s no longer a young boy, but a man who is determined to win her heart, and he is prepared to do just that.

But convincing her they are destined to be together gets much harder when she is kidnapped by an old enemy. In order to survive, Frankie may have to reveal her secret, and Tanner may have to accept what seems impossible, or reject the love of his life.

Talon Cavanaugh stood on the grassy knoll above the cemetery, watching the procession as it wound through the cracked tombstones to the final resting place of the Wisdom Council’s leader, Leonard Cavanaugh. He smiled in satisfaction as the urn was laid into the dirt pit next to where his human wife would someday reside. Soon, he thought, soon all would be in place and he could claim his birthright.

“Son, I know how much you loved your uncle. Are you sure you don’t want to go down and join in the ceremony?” his father asked.

Well, the man he had called ‘father’ for most of his life, inquired. It was only on his mother, Sylvia’s, death bed, that Talon had learned the truth. He was the son of Leonard Cavanaugh, the owl leader of the Wisdom Council, who had died never knowing he had fathered a son. Sylvia had wanted to ensure the bloodline stayed pure when it became apparent that the old fool was planning to wed that woman, Paige, an inferior human. Sylvia had slipped a potion into his wine as the family celebrated her engagement to the leader’s brother, Lester, Talon’s assumed father.  Leonard Cavanaugh had mated with Sylvia that night, the potion making him hallucinate that he was with his beloved Paige.  Sylvia’s plan worked, and she gave birth to Talon, who was a pureblood shifter, keeping the bloodline intact.

Glancing over his shoulder, Talon shook his head in the negative at Lester. He had no need to go down there. He was the true heir to the leadership position of the Council. He knew the death procedure –  one year of grieving for the widow and the family. He looked to Frankie Cavanaugh. She was a beautiful woman, despite her human blood. Her red hair glowed like flames in the sunlight. She was appropriately dressed in black, her cultural brooch, made of gold and the feathers of her father, pinned to her breast. She was crying quietly into a handkerchief, hugging her mother, in solace. It was almost a pity she would have to die, but there could only be one true leader.

And that position would be filled by him.

#ReleaseDay – One More Night by Jenika Snow

 

 

 

 

When my sister passed away I adopted her daughter, Dolly, and raised her as my own. We were all we had left in this world and I was going to try my hardest to make sure she never wanted for anything.

That’s why I needed someone I trusted to watch over the most important person in my life. Being a businessman meant I was out of the house a good portion of the day, a necessary evil to provide for Dolly. A live-in nanny would ensure Dolly got the best care possible when I wasn’t with her.

And when I saw Emma for the first time I didn’t just see a caretaker for Dolly. I saw a woman who had every caveman instinct in me rising up like a primal beast. I felt possession and need for Emma the likes of which I’d never experienced before.

I didn’t just want a nanny anymore, I wanted Emma … all of her.
She might think this was just another job, but before our time was up Emma would realize she was mine and I wasn’t letting her go.

 



Warning: Guys, this book is going to give you whiplash for how insta-crazy it is. Talk about a hero who can’t keep his hands off his woman! This may look like a sugary sweet read—and it is—but make no mistake: it’s filthy as hell. We have one alpha hero who instantly falls for the heroine and won’t let her go. Maybe a little obsessive, but hey, that’s what we like.

His other hand pressed against my lower back and I gasped from the searing heat of that lone touch. When he pulled me closer, I groaned, his erection pressed against my belly. We were both frantic with need then, unable to stop what was about to happen.
“This is going to happen,” he said harshly and I could only nod in agreement.
“It’s crazy fast.”
He grunted. “It’s fucking perfect.”
When he broke the kiss to remove my clothes, I didn’t stop him. Once the material was gone our mouths were latched back together. Eyes closed, body lost in feeling, I brought my hands to the front of his slacks and fumbled with the button. I needed him naked, needed him to be pressed up against me in all his hard, powerful maleness.
His erection pressed demandingly against his slacks and all I could think about was what it would feel like to have him inside of me. He kissed me with so much demand I was helpless. Never removing his lips from mine, I was vaguely aware of the sound of his zipper being brought down. And then I felt the scorching-hot length of him press against my belly.
A moan ripped from me.
I had my hands on his shoulders, my nails digging into his body. I needed him impossibly closer. My bra still covered my breasts and I wanted the offending fabric gone. I wanted to feel his skin against mine.
“I need you naked,” I whispered, and pushed his shirt up almost frantically. The air left me when I glanced down at his hard chest. Tattoos covered his golden, muscular flesh.
“I need to have every part of your body on display so I can fucking own it.”
A shiver worked its way over me after he said those deliciously dark words.
I lowered my gaze down to his hard cock and swallowed. He was hung like a fucking monster. Before I could drag my gaze from the sight of his stiff dick, he had his hands pressed right below my ass and was lifting me. He held me for long seconds as he fucked my mouth. And there were no other words to describe exactly what he was doing.

The Drift, Book 5

Blurb

Three hearts. Two worlds. No limits.

Tyran Varosa and Braxon Torr are on a mission. Find an inhabitable planet. Start

a new colony. Escape the archaic rules and traditions of the Vardarian

homeworld. They never expected to find their mate along the way, and they

never imagined she’d be a diminutive human female with pink hair and a

warrior’s spirit.

Phaedra Kari has been called a lot of things in her life: trouble, cyber-jockey,

lunatic, hacker, but never someone’s mate – not until an alien prince and his best

friend arrive at the Drift. She’s got plans of her own, and they don’t include

mating anyone, not even a pair of gorgeous aliens whose every touch tempts her

to say yes.

When corporate backstabbing progresses to real-life murder, these three will

need to come together to ensure the survival of their plans, their friends, and

each other.

Excerpt

The crowd suddenly hushed and she stopped talking to focus on the scene unfolding

in front of her. The door to the newly arrived ship had opened, and a hot as hell male

walked through it. At first glance, he appeared almost human, with short, black hair and

a neatly trimmed beard. His skin was a shimmering silver, though, and he was taller

than most of the humans and Pheran present. Another male followed after the first, and

she had to bite her lip not to sigh in appreciation. The second male was a little taller and

broader than the first, and his skin had a golden sheen to it. His hair was long enough to

be tied back, but his beard was as closely cropped as his silver companions.

“They don’t look much like aliens.”

Zale grunted. “Maybe not to you.”

That was the moment both males unfurled their wings. Holy fraxx. They had wings! “I

take it back. Wings are definitely alien.”
